"It ticks all the boxes."
Sports associations are still waiting on word from the Saskatchewan government about what their spring and summer seasons will look like. "We're all making plans to make sports happen," said Bob Reindl, executive of Saskatchewan Athletics, which governs track and field, cross country, road running and race walking in the province. But ultimately, competition all depends on Saskatchewan's COVID-19 situation. Saskatchewan public health officials reported 321 new cases of COVID-19 Sunday, over half of which were identified in the Saskatoon and Regina zones. There are now 2,504 known active cases throughout the province. There are 199 people in hospital due to the illness, including 46 patients in intensive care. The death of one more person in their 60s from COVID-19 was reported Sunday. Registrations high Saskatchewan Athletics is planning on holding events around June, said Reindl, but that depends on when word comes from the provincial government about what's allowed for sports. So athletes are training with their coaches, per the health restrictions, in the meantime. The Prince Albert Minor Baseball Association is planning as though they'll get the green light, said president Duane Krip. Registration is going as normal and the association will select teams in the coming weeks as if the season would start in the first week of May as usual, said Krip. "Our registration numbers are as high as they've ever been," he said, citing they are up to 2019 levels after dipping in 2020 due to the pandemic. The baseball season was postponed last year until July 2020, then it ran until the end of August. To Krip's knowledge, there were no COVID-19 cases linked to baseball at all during the summer. "We're hoping [the Saskatchewan government] will give the same considerations this summer," he said, but apparently leagues have been waiting for a few weeks to hear about the plan for summer sports. At this point, Prince Albert Minor Baseball could move ahead with a season starting the first week of May, regardless of when the province provides information, Krip said. But no moves will be made until the league receives a confirmation letter from Baseball Saskatchewan, which oversees baseball across the province, giving them the thumbs-up. Current public health orders A new public health order was issued April 7. Among other things, it prohibits team sports, but people 18 years old or younger can still keep conditioning and practice their skills in groups up to eight people as long as three metres of distance is maintained at all times, the health order says. If indoors, masks must be worn during training unless training in a pool. Leagues, tournaments and competitions are only permitted under Saskatchewan's reopening plan, the health order says. There are specific rules for the Regina area, however, as it is the province's COVID-19 hotspot with 1,044 known active cases as of Sunday. The public health order states that all indoor public gatherings are prohibited in the Queen City. There are some exceptions, but sports facilities are not one of them. Outdoor gatherings, both private and public, can have up to 10 people and attendees must maintain at least two metres of distance between people from a different household, the order says. Professional curlers, players in the Western Hockey League and athletes 19 or older training for the Tokyo Olympics in July are exempt. The current public health order expires April 26.

PHOENIX — Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Luke Weaver's no-hit bid ended with one out in the seventh inning when Cincinnati's Eugenio Suárez snuck a broken-bat single up the middle. Weaver retired Nick Castellanos to start the seventh on a fly ball, then walked Joey Votto on four pitches. Suárez followed with the groundball single, which was perfectly placed between Arizona's shortstop and second baseman. The 27-year-old Weaver had a perfect game through 5 2/3 innings Sunday but hit Alex Blandino with a pitch with two outs in the sixth. The right-hander retired Tyler Naquin on a strikeout to end the inning. The Diamondbacks lead 7-0 in the seventh. Weaver is trying to bounce back from a tough 2020 season when he led the National League with nine losses and had a 6.58 ERA. ___ Follow David Brandt at https://twitter.com/davidbrandtAP ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports David Brandt, The Associated Press

WARNING: This story contains a graphic image. Forty caribou were harvested illegally during a blizzard somewhere in the Northwest Territories, according to the territorial government. In a Facebook post published Saturday, Environment and Natural Resources did not say exactly where or when the animals were killed. However, the post noted it was unfortunate news to close out the winter road season. "This is unacceptable — and against the traditional values Elders have taught for generations," the post reads. Illegal harvesting of caribou has been a growing problem this winter season. Back in March, Environment Minister Shane Thompson said the department was investigating the illegal harvest of more than 50 caribou. That was compared to less than 10 illegally harvested caribou at the same time the previous winter. "We're working with Indigenous leaders to chart a new path forward for encouraging respectful harvesting," read Saturday's post by Environment and Natural Resources. "Everyone needs to take action today to ensure there are caribou for the next generations."

(Bloomberg) -- Ballot counting has started in Ecuador’s knife-edge presidential election that will determine whether the country remains a U.S. ally with an IMF program, or revives its friendship with Venezuela and Cuba.The two contenders in the runoff vote offer starkly different policies to confront the economic crisis. Two exit polls published by local media showed a close margin.Socialist economist Andres Arauz, 36, has pledged to pay a million poor families $1,000 each, with money taken out of the central bank’s reserves. Career banker Guillermo Lasso, 65, says he’ll attract foreign investors and create jobs via policies that help the private sector.Arauz is a protege of former President Rafael Correa, who shut the U.S. military’s base in the country and forged an alliance with then-Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez.Polls closed at 5 p.m. local time, and the first partial results are expected two hours later.Before any official results had been published, Lasso supporters in the coastal city of Guayaquil appeared confident of victory, and jumped and cheered. The atmosphere at Arauz’s campaign headquarters in Quito was more subdued.The country of 17 million people has been struggling since oil prices crashed in 2014, and was already in recession when the pandemic hit. Last year the economy contracted 7.8%, its worst performance since at least the 1970s.Read More: Why Ecuador’s Runoff Vote Matters for the Bond Market: QuickTakeIn the first-round vote in February, Arauz came first with 32.7%, while Lasso got 19.7%. Recent polls showed Lasso having closed that gap, after receiving the endorsement of the majority of the candidates who were eliminated in the first round.Whoever wins and takes office in May will face a fragmented, potentially hostile legislature and voters who are hostile to austerity measures.Central bank reform is a key part of Ecuador’s $6.5 billion funding agreement with the International Monetary Fund. Arauz’s pledge to distribute central bank reserves to families would probably mean the end of that deal, said Siobhan Morden, a managing director for Amherst Pierpont. Of the total, $2.5 billion remains to be disbursed.Ecuador’s recently restructured dollar bonds have rallied in recent weeks, as investors bet that Lasso’s chances of victory were improving.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
TORONTO — The Toronto Maple Leafs have added more grit and leadership ahead of the NHL trade deadline. The club acquired forward Nick Foligno from the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday in a three-team deal that also included the San Jose Sharks. Columbus secured Toronto's first-round pick in the 2021 NHL draft and fourth-round selection in 2022, while San Jose gets the Leafs' fourth rounder in 2021. The Blue Jackets will retain 50 per cent of Foligno's contract, while the Sharks earn a pick for retaining the other half of his US$5.5-million salary cap hit. Toronto also got minor-league forward Stefan Noesen from San Jose in the deal. The trade deadline is set for Monday at 3 p.m. ET. Set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, the 33-year-old Foligno had seven goals and 16 points in 42 games with Columbus this season. The son of former Leafs winger Mike Foligno has registered 203 goals and 482 points in 950 career regular-season games with Columbus and the Ottawa Senators. Named the sixth captain in Blue Jackets history in May 2015, Foligno has added nine goals and 22 points in 51 playoff contests. The Buffalo, N.Y., native was selected 28th overall by Ottawa in 2006. The Leafs, who currently sit first in the Canadian-based North Division, beefed up their grit and leadership in the off-season, signing in free agency Joe Thornton, Wayne Simmonds and Zach Bogosian, after getting bounced from last summer's NHL post-season by Foligno's Blue Jackets.
